Android MOD – Island/Shelter is here | Virtual Machine on Android ?

island

On the Island, you can:





* Isolate app, for privacy protection.
* Clone app, for parallel running.
* Freeze app, to completely block its background behaviors.
* Hide app, for various reasons.
* Use VPN only on one side, or different VPN on both sides.
……

To uninstall and remove Island completely, please first “Destroy Island” in “Settings – Scoped Settings – Island”. If you have already uninstalled the Island app, please “Remove work profile” in your device “Settings – Accounts”.

===== PERMISSIONS =====

DEVICE-ADMIN: Device administrator privilege is required to create the Island space (work profile), which serves as the fundamental functionality of Island. It will be explicitly requested for your consent.

PACKAGE_USAGE_STATS: Required to correctly recognize the running state of apps. It will be explicitly requested for your consent.

We will never collect data related to your privacy, please read our privacy policy for more details.





About Shelter

This app requires Device Admin permissions to work. If you question what it does with the permission, please read or audit the source code, you can also build from the source code on your own.

Shelter is a Free and Open-Source (FOSS) app that leverages the “Work Profile” feature of Android to provide an isolated space that you can install or clone apps into.





Shelter comes with absolutely no advertisement / statistics / tracking SDKs bundled with it. All source code is available in at https://git.angry.im/PeterCxy/Shelter or mirror https://github.com/PeterCxy/Shelter and the sources are licensed under WTFPL.

This app depends on your Android system’s implementation of Work Profile. Some vendor / custom ROMs may have a broken implementation that may cause crashes and even bricking of your device. One such example is MIUI from Xiaomi. I currently provide no support for such ROMs because I personally do not own any of these devices. If you are running Shelter on these ROMs, you are on your own. If any developer out there own these devices and could make Shelter run on these ROMs, please send pull requests and I’ll be happy to merge them.

Features / Use Cases
===

– Run apps inside the isolated profile so they cannot access your data outside the profile
– “Freeze” (disable) background-heavy or seldom-used apps when you don’t need them. This is especially true if you use apps from “some company”.
– Clone apps to use two accounts on one device

Caveats
===

Shelter is not a full sandbox implementation. It cannot protect you from:




– Security bugs of the Android system or Linux kernel
– Backdoors installed in your Android system (so please use an open-source ROM if you are concerned about this)
– Backdoors installed into the firmwares (no way to work around this)
– Any other bugs or limitations imposed by the Android system.

Also, Shelter cannot create more than 1 work profile on one Android device, and cannot co-exist with any other apps that manages a Work Profile. This is due to the limitations of the Android system, and I can do nothing about this.
